Supermom Stops Runaway School Bus

| by MomLogic

Last week, we brought you the story of an incredible mom who noticed an empty bus rolling toward her son's middle school -- and a group of kids standing on the sidewalk. Thinking quickly, she jumped in, slammed both feet on the brake and stopped the bus, surely preventing what could have been a catastrophic event.

The principal and the local community are calling this Methuen, Mass., mom of two a hero. So are we!

Momlogic sat down with Lorie Aliano (in between her part-time job as a nurse and her son's T-ball game) to hear her side of the story.

"When the bus was moving, I said to myself, 'I need to get on that bus and stop it somehow, before someone gets hurt,'" Aliano recalls. "My adrenaline was at a very high level at this point, and my main focus was to stop this bus and pray that it stopped."

The bus did indeed stop -- all thanks to her Herculean efforts!

But Aliano is modest about her new "hero" status. "I didn't do this to be called a hero," she says. "I thought if I didn't stop the bus, someone would get hurt. I never thought it was going to get this much attention."

Now that's one super mom!
